Rochester Edge Girls Hockey 2021 - 2022 Girls 12u Tier 2

David Waldo & Tom Wescott​

Edge Girls 12u Training Plan 2021-2022:


Philosophy for maximizing development is: 

●      To emphasize skill development at all levels through high intensity practices, individualized instruction in skill based clinics with an emphasis on puck possession, skating, speed and agility, puck control, shooting, and passing. 


●      To help our players maximize their full athletic potential we encourage creativity and help players to develop their “hockey sense” through a variety of drills and small-area games.
